Slice Up Wonderland in Alice: Madness Returns

So you've been watching the trailers of Sucker Punch and thinking DAMN..I wonder why more people don't make more of ANYTHING with pretty girls slicing giants to bits with samurai swords, shooting up entire cities with gatling guns and blowing up scores of robots leaving nothing but scorched earth in their wake. Electronic Arts hears you and shares your love of the classic femme fatale...emphasis on the Fatal. Welcome to Alice: Madness Returns!

Eleven years ago a horrific fire took Alice’s family from her and left her terribly burned—and her mind terribly scarred. Afterwards she was confined to Rutledge Asylum, struggling to come to terms with her demons by slipping into her fantasy world of Wonderland. Now, after ten years, she has finally secured her release--yet she still bears the heavy psychological burden of that tragic event.

In Alice: Madness Returns, Alice is released from the asylum to a London psychiatrist’s care. As nightmarish hallucinations continue to haunt her and invade her reality, she seeks to understand her torment in order to recover herself. Her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear and neuroses prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Her relocation to London seems only to add to their number and intensity.

Perhaps she’ll do better in Wonderland. She always has. She travels there, seeking what the “real” world can’t provide: security, knowledge, and the truth about the past. But in her absence, Wonderland too has suffered. Something has gone horribly wrong, and now a great evil is descending upon what once was her beautiful refuge.

Can Alice save Wonderland—and herself—from the madness that consumes them both?

..and yes, this is the long awaited sequel to American McGee's Alice, so you go ahead and cheer now! June 14th is the release date. Be ready.
